I once had a senior comment on my hair style and suggest a pixie cut. I just look the other way 😾

Lol. Feel like that might be more telling of his son than you.

Have any of you experienced a more junior person go above you... specifically, the staff sent me a file, I (a senior) reviewed and updated it and sent it to the mgr late Friday so he had enough time to review before our Monday early afternoon call with the client. I had an email come through tonight from the staff sending the mgr an updated file “correcting” mine... in no way do I think I’m the best and my file is perfect, but I was a little taken aback... am I dramatic or is this bold?

I moved to a new team/client and managing them virtually seems to be super daunting. I am posting here and not in the broader consulting group because I am the only women on the team and wanted to get a perspective from women managers/leads. How do y’all do it?
